E30 rust question


Recommended Posts

...because this forum is better than the E30 forums I've seen to date.

What is the line of demarcation between "rusty" and "unsafe" on an E30?--

are there structural rust points (like rockers, shock towers, frame rails on the 2oo2) that might cause collapse?

I'm considering a winter beater (ix), and I only expect one or two seasons out of it, but I need a stable car, not a deathtrap. Thoughts appreciated.
